Back when I made my 30 things to do before 30, I had a big line item on there to figure out what or how I felt about kids. You know, those people that happen when a boy loves a girl, and they have unprotected sex? Yeah, that. And then… nothing. I never mentioned it… Continue reading Baby or not?
I almost started this post with an apology to my male readers who don’t need the intimate details of my menstrual cycle. But then I stopped. One, because I realized that my readers are smart enough to not waste their time with articles that are not relevant to them. Secondly, I am too old to… Continue reading Period Essentials
If you pay the slightest bit of attention to modern feminism or well, just about anything else, it is not going to shock you that in both the media and social norms push women to ideas of perfection.
